The red-headed rock agama (Agama agama) is named due to its red to orange head. Only the head of the tribe gets to show off all of his brilliant colours while the rest of his family has to settle for duller versions. While females and non-dominant males are not so brightly coloured, a breeding male has a red or orange head, blue body and a tail that can be either red, deep blue or striped turquoise. These colours intensify during breeding. Preceding a fight, his head turns brown and white spots appear on his body. Females and young males are typically brown or olive green with a white belly, and a head that is slightly different colour than their body. Also known as the common agama or rainbow agama, it is founding much of central Africa as well as Florida in the USA.
